Hit a pot hole in the week, turns out it wasn't just the road flooded but a great big dent in it.
On the way home Friday I could hear something rattling around in the wheel arch, I hadn't run over anything so I'm thinking I've broke a spring.
That'll be the third in less than 3 years.
Will take it to my Indy and get it on the ramp this week to make sure.

Check your wheels carefully on the inner rim too. This was my wheel after a pothole hit. Didn't find it at the time, but it opened up over the following weeks.

Dropped in on the Indy and he's given it a good looking over, said he couldn't see any spring damage. I'll keep it monitored. Will keep an eye on the wheel, cheers.

When the spring broke on my daughter’s Giulietta the broken part (about 1/2 turn of the coil) was right at the bottom and when I looked I couldn’t see anything either, but on really close inspection it was spotted. Same symptom as yours.

Been slowly altering mine, a 2013 collezione 1.4 MA.
Replaced front grill.
Double din with wireless carplay
Wrapped dash fascia in satin black.
Wrapped trim on door grab handle and center trim in satin chrome.
Replaced aerial base Bugger job for large hands!!!
Will do steering wheel next (have already got the fiat wheel).
Armrest fitted.

Need to look at squeaky suspension, only on speed humps but annoying.

Testfit my new wheels today. Still waiting on spacers and new tyres then they'll be on.

If anyone is selling some team dynamics centre caps lmk, will repaint to match the wheels.

Couldn't be happier with it tbh, sort of wish I'd colour matched them to the car as I had them painted anyway 🤦🏽 oh well

At last, somebody who knows this bit is the door handle.

Sold it.

I started working from home a few months ago so it just sits there on the drive. Thought it was a shame for it to rot away like that.

Ended up going through WeBuyAnyCar as I had it on AutoTrader for a while but had nothing but low-ballers and time wasters. I ended up getting quite a bit more for it than anyone had offered me so quite happy with that.

I will miss the roar of the engine though (I had a Cloverleaf).
